Pacific Black Photos

Anas superciliosa

A gorgeous, huge bird with an impossibly long neck, we saw Black Swans in many areas during our trip. However, I didn't really get a chance to photograph them until our last day, when visiting Centennial Park in Sydney. Certainly not a shy species, they've clearly learned to live with human beings, as we found them not only in relatively "wild" habitat, but also in many city parks and ponds.
